This modern café lies at the edge of Graefekiez area on busy Urbanstraße. Therefore Suess Speisen isn’t really suitable for sitting outside, but all the more for having a quality breakfast at a fair price. The owners use seasonal produce without any flavour enhancers. Even though the breakfast menu is not as long as in some other cafés, it changes regularly, is well-compiled and dishes are home-made. We recommend the Brunch a la carte: for 10,50 Euros you get a sophisticated combination of cold and warm elements, often including a soup. Who still wants to queue for the brunch buffet?

This trendy pub at Landwehrkanal is not only packed in the evening. Breakfast enjoys a good reputation, too. At Fuchsbau they serve fresh ingredients, tasty cold cuts and cheese. The trimmings like herbs and salad look appealing, too. That’s why on weekends Fuchsbau is frequented even before noon. If you like to enjoy a bit of sunshine in the beer garden, better get up early!

The nice location opposite Görlitzer Park is only one of the reasons for a visit at Nest. Another one: they offer low priced breakfast daily from 10 am. The Cheese Breakfast, including quark, home-made jam and a small fruit salad besides the cheese, costs 7 Euros, the mixed platter 7,20 Euros. Classic English breakfast with baked beans, fried egg, bacon, tomato and marmalade is available on Saturdays only for 7,90 Euros. The Sunday brunch buffet is a little more expensive at 14,90 Euros. Children up to 14 years pay 6,90 Euros only. The price is put into perspective anyway when you catch sight of the buffet in all its splendour. Nest is nicely furnished and bright. Still there is nothing like a place at the terrace on a sunny morning in spring or summer.
